UK Anti-Homophobia Football Ad Pulled

The video below is a news report about an ad that was pulled at the last minute. It has been a year in the making. Developed with the UK Football Assoc. (Think NFL) it confronts the homophobic jeers in the stadium of soccer fans. The ad features a man walking through the office, shouting out epithets to his co-workers. "Stupid homo," "F-ing queer.." As the elevator door closes, "If this is not acceptable behavior here..." Fade to the same man in the crowd at a soccer stadium, yelling the same things... "Why should it be here?"

Great idea! How about the Episcopal Church picking this up?
